Oscar Picks 2007

Actor: Forrest Whitaker. It’s about time, he’s deserved this since Smoke.

Actress: Helen Mirren will get it tho I’m rooting for Penelope Cruz in Volver just cuz I’m an Almodovar fan from waaay back.

Supporting Actor: It’s between Eddie Murphy and Mark Wahlberg. Both gave the performances of their lives, but you felt for Eddie’s character where you really didn’t for Mark’s. So the Oscar goes to Eddie, unless of course members of the Academy have seen Norbit.

Supporting Actress: Jennifer Hudson, hands down. Who’s the American Idol now, bitches?

Animated Feature: Happy Feet.

Director: Clint Eastwood, again, it’s about time.

Foreign Film: Pan’s Labyrinth.

Song: “Listen” from Dreamgirls. Not much choice here this year, but this is the best o’ the bunch.

Visual Effects: Superman Returns. The dude of steel saving that plane and shuttle are the only reason to see the flick.

Best Picture: The Departed, only because it’s the only one I’ve seen this year.

Check back later for my thoughts on the winners and the awards show itself.

  1. Win some, lose some, but I got a few right, didn’t I? I thought it was much too long. Ellen added nothing to the show. The tribute to Morricione was wonderful. As was the Will Farrell and Jack Black song and Seinfeld’s bit. And I guess I’ll have to see Little Miss Sunshine and Pan’s Labyrinth.
